You could get an external cleaner, pass the code through it and then pass it to the user.

But, nearly all of them are based around tidy, simply because tidy is the dog's when it comes to tidying.

I use it in Firefox to validate my pages.

Or you could send it to a paid for service which does it for you, but they probably use tidy.


Why not use tidy?

Before to use a product i always try to find competitors to use the best.
In this case, tidy seems to be the best so now i have to find how to install it with my ISP.

It is a linux.
I read that the class tidy is delivered with PHP5 but when i check the configuration of my ISP (www.ovh.com) i don't find this extension.
So i think that it is necessary to install it.

I don't use dedicated server.
Richard QuadlingSenior Software DeveloperCommented:
Asking the ISP to install the tidy extension should be OK. If they are supporting PHP5, then they should allow the extension.
Richard QuadlingSenior Software DeveloperCommented:
You can check by creating a PHP script containing ...

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

This will show you the full configuration.

Thing to see is if tidy is compiled into PHP.
